Short Attention Span? Moi?

piggy.jpgTomorrow night at 8 is the June ResFest screening, a monthly, mini film festival hosted by Res magazine at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. I went to last month’s screening, and it was pretty darn cool, particularly because it was my only chance to see music videos presented on the big screen. (Or maybe anywhere, since MTV doesn’t seem to play those pesky video thingies much anymore.) Besides the videos, though, ResFest also offers up some neato short films, a Q&A session with directors and producers after the screening and what promises to be a rocking rooftop after-party.

Tickets are available for $10 at Ticketweb, and this includes your admission to the soiree.

Tomorrow’s screening features a “special mini-retrospective of work by acclaimed Canadian animator Monkmus. The program will include his multiple collaborations with Kid Koala as well as the U.S. Premiere of his video ‘Year of the Rat’ for Badly Drawn Boy.”
